Τhe very first equestrian sport meetings took place in 680 BC in ancient Greece with chariot races. Later, the riding was one of the sports of the nobility. The past years, the evolution of technology and the daily way of living have eliminated largely the horse from our lives. But recently there have seen a shift in the interests of the world and people turn to activities that take place in nature as a means of relaxation, fun, entertainment and escape from the stress and bustle of cities!
Activities such as horse riding have started to gain more and more friends. Usually the tours are made in the forest or near the river. But, what about enjoying horse riding on a beach!! It doesn’t sound bad, does it?
